    Good to see your around Weasel, had some good news over the weekend though. Uncle Peter is an architect and is designing Sky Scrapers in New York, just recently married Jane who is from NY. and I could be coming over for a while, maybe could be working over there but things are still early in discussion.

    Good to hear the weather is getting better. Over here it's still overcast and the summer is yet to kick off. Have you heard anyhting

    Well it 13:15 pm here and lunch is in about 2 hours off home to see the wife but more importantly have a blast in the Scooby.

    Weasel am I getting used to the car as I keep feeling it's not as quick as it used to be. Also apparently stock for it 280 BHP with the exhaust 300+,

    To be fair he designs lots of things but currently working in NY, as for the car it was serviced by Prodrive UK about 6 weeks ago, and it wasn't cheap either. Maybe it's me just getting used to the acceleration and thats it.

    Thing is it's quick to 50mph in second gear as well and quick on the breaks to 0mph in a maters of 2 seconds or so. I suppose getting her to Silverstone will see the real benefits of the car.

    I am currently looking at a few minor mod's and the biggest one is taking the top intercooler and moving it to the front and adding a Storm Wide body kit so it looks similar to the 22B.

    Can't see me ever selling her so it's a case of when money allows. I'll have to get hold of the graphics for thwe side and email them over to you.

    Let me know if you guys would like me to list more sites, as Prodrive is based in England we are getting more and more kits coming out.

    Or if someone is after something specific maybe I can help them.

    Think of Xmas Red Coat and White beard !! Not that I look like that but maybe if your good you'll get what you want
